We’re inviting all presidential candidates to appear on the Fallon Forum, and responses are starting to come in. The following week — Monday, September 16 — Admiral Joe Sestak joins us at 11:05 for the first half of the program. We’ll talk about a wide range of issues and, of course, the climate crisis, about which Sestak says:
“Climate change and environmental collapse are twin problems that threaten the very existence of life as we know it on this planet. Solving them presents our generation with the greatest challenge in human history.”
Nice starting point for our dialogue!
This coming Monday, September 9, Dr. Charles Goldman joins me. The program lineup may change if we’ve got some big breaking news, for example, a headline like:
PRESIDENT TRUMP USES SHARPIE TO ANNEX GREENLAND INTO MAINE, MAKING MAINE THE BIGGEST STATE AND OUTRAGING BOTH TEXAS AND DENMARK!
Ok, that headline is fake news, though not inconceivable. Back to our September 9 program lineup:
* Thanks to Republican lawmakers’ finely honed gerrymandering skills, 2020 state legislative races across the US may be more important than congressional races.
* President Trump — a.k.a., the White House resident “stable genius” — acquires almost magical meteorological skills. Look out Alabama!
* Addressing climate change and income inequality may well be the ticket to turning out millennial voters in 2020.
* Hey One-percenters, you’re in luck again: Another Trump tax cut might be heading your way.
